Root Canal Therapy

Retreatment Root Canal

Periapical Surgery

 

Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth has an inflamed pulp (nerve) or if the tooth is necrotic (dead) and is infected, root canal treatment is necessary in order to save the tooth. The inflamed or infected tissue inside the tooth is removed using rotary instruments and disinfecting solutions. After this, a rubber-like filling material is placed in the canals along with a sealer (cement) to seal the root canal. After the root canal treatment, you will return to your dentist for a final restoration

Retreatment Root Canal

When a tooth that has already had a root canal, it may need a retreatment for a variety of reasons. During the procedure, the previous filling material is removed under operating microscope to clean and disinfect the canals. In many instances, an antibacterial medicine is placed in the canals for a few weeks before you return to finish the treatment. Final phase, it is essentially the same procedure as the root canal.

Periapical Surgery

There are some instances when a root canal or retreatment are not recommended. In these instances, a procedure called apicoectomy may be performed. This is microsurgery where the tip of the root is usually removed along with any infected tissue, and the canals are cleaned and filled from the root end.

Note: All procedures are performed under an operating microscope (OM) which allows Dr Niemi to better visualize the procedure and the internal anatomy of your tooth.

OPERATING MICROSCOPE

Greatly enhances a clinician's ability to view the tiniest details inside a patient's tooth. By magnifying vision up to 25 times that of the naked eye, the dental microscope is useful in both diagnosis and treatment. Research demonstrates better outcomes compared to treatment without vision enhancement or magnification. Microscopes aid in:

  • Finding hidden and accessory canals

  • Locating and removing separated instruments

  • Preserving more tooth structure

  • Improving ergonomics for the clinician
